Working with Cassie Ekstrom, LCSW-C

How do you approach the beginning of your therapeutic work together?

The first few sessions are focused on getting to know you and your goals as well as form a trusting relationship. I believe that positive relationship building is key when it comes to starting therapy. I am most interested in what you are looking to get out of therapy.

What do you hope for your patients once you’ve concluded therapy?

I hope that clients will gain the skills and confidence to manage all of life's challenges and will be aware of when they need to come back for a check-in without shame. I mostly hope to tear away the stigma of therapy and help people understand how helpful it can be.
